4.0 out of 5 stars Still a good read, 8 Dec. 2002

(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)   
Wall's 1990 book on the mighty Gun'n Roses is still a great read. The noisy, frivolous, gaudy people this book celebrates wanted to destroy the temples of doom - not eat babies. But this stuff was considered dangerous, seditious, contagious and, like good art, any art, a whole lot more fun than you think you're allowed to have. Mick Wall's position as a top UK rock journalist gave him access to many of the world's best bands. As an interviewer he gets very close to the musicians and as a consequence the book is more of a dialogue between friends than a serious interview, and that's exactly where its appeal lies. A book for the hard rock fan and the late 80s nostalgist, it's still a lot of fun to read after all these years. But also check out Nick Kent's book The Dark Stuff, the chapter titled "The Daze of Guns'n Roses" gives an interesting perspective on the band.
